2-night Premiere at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts

PENNY is the story of a woman, Penelope Rutherford, who discovers, as an adult, that her voice is good enough for her to be a professional musician. Penny is autistic; some members of her family have never learned to treat her as an adult. Consequently, when Penny begins to pursue a career as an independent performer, she comes into conflict with her family--and has to make a choice between their misguided wishes and her growing desire to perform.
